Stanley Anthony Coveleski (July 13, 1889 - March 20, 1984) was one of 17 spitballers allowed to continue use of the pitch after the 1920 ban. Stan was legendary for his amazing control, honing his skill trying to knock a tin can off a log from 40-50 ft. away as a boy. Spending one year at the start of his career with the Philadelphia Athletics (1912), Stan had a successful tenure in the American League with the Cleveland Indians (1916-1924), the Washington Senators (1925-1927) and the New York Yankees (1928). Coveleski played for two American League pennant winners and won one World Series title with the Cleveland Indians in 1920. During the 1920 Fall Classic, he went 3-0 with 8 strikeouts and an unbelievable 0.67 ERA allowing only two runs in 27 innings. Coveleski retired with a record of 215-142 (a .602 winning percentage), 981 strikeouts and a career 2.88 earned run average. The Veterans Committee elected Stanley Anthony Coveleski to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969.
